Manufacturer Info



If you haven’t heard of Chris-Craft Boats, you probably don’t know your port from your starboard—this builder can be traced back to Christopher Columbus Smith, who began building boats in 1874 at the age of 13. Although the company has gone through many acquisitions, changes, and modifications since that time, it remains an industry powerhouse with a range of 19 boats including runabouts, cruisers, and center consoles. Today’s models feature a mix of classic styling and eye appeal with performance and ultra-modern construction techniques and design.
